And I'm a big believer in magical timing. So what better day to launch a new venture than February 29??
It's tempting to use an inaugural post as a mission statement, laying out what you can expect to find here, moving forward; but, quite frankly, I still don't really know what that looks like. I've stressed over what to write about, and what to call it, and a hundred other things; and I've felt paralyzed in fear-of-getting-it-wrong. Getting started seems impossible sometimes because -- how do you define a thing that doesn't exist yet??
Hint: you can't.
Or, anyway, I can't. I'm no Euclid.
But I'm learning (finally, painfully, slowly) that what we make doesn't have to be perfect, that there is power in vulnerability, and that living in fear-of-getting-it-wrong is a fool's errand. It's going to happen, and happen, and happen, again. And it's a good thing, too, because, almost always, taking a step is better than standing still; and once in a while, a wrong step leads you right where you're meant to be. So here it goes: I'm creating a thing!! And I'm looking forward to finding out what it is.
